WHICH DRUGSTORE DRY SHAMPOO SHOULD YOU BUY?

posted in: BEAUTY, BLOG | 17
Since when does every drugstore hair brand have a dry shampoo? I’d been using Suave for years because it was the only thing out there, then all of a sudden BAM! There’s like 10 different kinds of dry shampoo at Kroger. I guess everyone is getting in on the greasy hair game these days. As I previously mentioned, I’ve been wanting to change up my dry shampoo, so I picked up 6 different bottles to do a little test for you. I’ve been trying them for the past 2 weeks to let YOU know which one is the best so you don’t have to figure it out for yourself!
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo – This one smells a bit like baby powder but overall the scent is pretty okay. The product is very white when it comes out of the bottle. I left the product in for a few minutes before brushing out and my hair still looked a little bit too shiny. Later in the day my hair dry, tangly, and prone to flyaways though so I have to give this one a 6/10.
Pantene Blowout Extend Dry Shampoo – I am just not a fan of Pantene in general and this product did nothing to help my negative perception of the brand. This dry shampoo goes on clear, but when I brushed it out it solidified into gross white flakes. This one is no better than Suave, it’s just more expensive. I had to put my hair in a ponytail after this one because it looked so bad. 3/10.
Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo – Like the Pantene, this one sprays on clear. It made my hair a bit wet at first, but as the alcohol evaporated it took on a grandma-y floral scent. Because this product is clear, it was super easy to brush out. My hair looked really nice after using this but I felt kind of felt greasy through the day. 8/10.
Tresemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo – Ugh this smells like lemon drop shots. It wets down your hair and it leaves a residue. It’s like, your hair isn’t greasy but it’s just covered in this nastiness. I feel like if your drugstore or grocery store only has one shampoo, it’s usually this one. I guess I would use it in a greasy hair emergency. 2/10.
Suave Morroccan Infusion Dry Shampoo – This used to be the only cheap dry shampoo out there for a long time, and I have used it for years. It does make your hair less greasy, but I think it actually dries it out so much that it causes breakage. Definitely not seeing any “moroccan infusion” here. Smells pretty good though. 4/10.
Batiste Dry Shampoo Original – This is my favorite out of the bunch. It smells nice, and when I use it my hair actually looks clean. I feel like with most dry shampoos, they just cause the absence of greasiness, but that’s not really the same thing as actually feeling & looking clean. It’s worth the extra couple of dollars, and I don’t even need to use it every single day. Since I’ve started using this, I’m down to one shampoo or less a week. 9/10.
So there you have it. Buy Bastiste or Herbal Essence dry shampoos and don’t even look at Tresemmé or Pantene! Now go forth and conquer!

  2. I love good honest reviews! I just purchased my first herbal essence dry shampoo in citrus and can't wait to try it! Would love to be able to wash my hair once a week instead of twice as it really saves the time and I hate having wet hair during the winter

  4. This was so helpful, thank you! I'm always looking for drugstore comparisons. Where did you find the Batiste brand? I don't think I've seen any at my Kroger.

    • At my Kroger they have Batiste brand dry shampoos with the higher end hair products like Chi and Frederic Fekkai. You could probably get an even better price on Amazon!

  10. I've never used dry shampoo ever haha. I don't think it works with my hair type plus I sometimes wear extensions and dry shampoo doesn't really go well with it. Like Nicole mentioned above I've heard awesome things about batiste. A friend of mine actually purchased it and it worked wonders for her. If I were to buy dry shampoo I would go with Pantene or Herbal Essence. Those are two brands who have awesome shampoo!
